As for the widespread griefing. Almost all of it was attributed to one person, and they had been on the server for a while and would have been white listed had there been one. They even knew specific people on the server.
I donno. Maybe there should be a new spawn in the middle of nowhere for new members and the current spawn could be a warp point for current builders. That's a pretty dumb idea, I know, but a lot of people have some pretty cool structures close to the spawn and it's to easy for people to come in and mess stuff up.
The real problem here is some things couldn't be fixed when the server was rolled back. It only takes two or three coordinated griefers to come in one night and destroy a lot of buildings. As the server grows in popularity and more random people jump on this becomes more likely. I know I'd be pretty ticked off if I logged in one day only to see the whole place in ruins.
I can see both ghastly and Intel from my place, if the griefer had more time it coulda been my place up in flames and un-roll-back-able (lol).
